If Trump is compelled by election results to relinquish the Oval Office, the moment he steps out of the White House he should commence tweeting and podcasting in opposition to the shortcomings of the looming Biden regime.
For there will no doubt be many.
There should be none of this “a former President remains quiet for a year” hooey.
That is nowhere required by the Constitution.
It is a mere tradition.
The Democrats are the ones that have been threatening to undo any number of traditions in what will amount to little more than a third Obama term.
For whom do you think it will be guiding a President that most days couldn’t make it from the basement up the stairs into the living room?
Do those respecting tradition conspire to pack the Supreme Court or abolish the Electoral College?
Inflicting those changes upon the nation would do more to upend America’s precarious political balance than an once-elected official returning to the status of private citizen speaking his mind ever could.
